Ethos, Values and Aims

Our ethos, values and aims are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


Our aim, in partnership with parents and the local community, is to give all pupils the best start to their school career.

We offer staff opportunities and support in their professional development and recognise their achievements.

Our aim is to provide a curriculum that is rich, varied and relevant to all our pupils.

We have high expectations of all pupil's in order to encourage the highest levels of individual achievement. Pupil’s learning is monitored and assessed to ensure appropriate challenges are set. We create opportunities for children to develop as responsible and caring individuals showing respect for others and their environment.


At Thorpe Hall, together, we aim to provide rich and memorable learning experiences by:

  • Meeting the needs of all learners.

  • Enabling children to become confident, resourceful, enquiring and independent learners.

  • Fostering children's self-esteem and help them build positive relationships with other people.

  • Developing children's self-respect and encourage children to respect ideas, attitudes, values and feelings of others.

  • Showing respect for all cultures in order to promote positive attitudes towards other people.

  • Enabling children to understand their community and help them feel valued as part of this community.

  • Helping children grow into reliable, independent and positive citizens for the 21st century.
